Ms. Couvreur negotiated a termination contract for me, resulting in much more favorable terms than initially proposed by my employer. While I have no prior experience using the services of a lawyer, I ended up gaining much more financially than I had to invest, so I consider that a success. Communication was quick, clear and pleasant throughout and we sorted everything from beginning to end via zoom, phone and email.
As an expat, I was not familiar with the employment laws so I contacted Noordam Advocatuur and Linda was very helpful, professional, and efficient throughout the whole process. I got answers to all my questions and concerns until the case was settled. I would highly recommend Linda to anyone who needs legal help!
Mr. Arnoud Noordam provided me with a legal advice on my employment situation. In doing so, he demonstrated unique ability to quickly identify the available options to address the issue, taking into account all the peculiarities and highlighting the pros and cons of each and every option. His way to deliver the information in a simple and understandable way made it easy to choose the right path. I would recommend Arnoud to those looking for comprehensive and effective consultation on employment situations of all kinds.
Coming from France I was unfamiliar with Dutch employment law. Linda took the time and helped me. She was very proactive and updating me everyday. She got me a better deal and helped me with the whole process. I will recommend Linda for her help and the entire team of Noordam Advocatuur.
I would recommend Linda Couvreur to anyone looking for a knowledgable, professional, compassionate and efficient lawyer. Linda assisted me with a very difficult contractual issue. Being an expat, I do not have any knowledge about Dutch law. I found myself in a very difficult situation and was distressed when I contacted Noordam Advocatuur. Linda immediately phoned me after I reached out to her and made me feel at ease. Linda was able to resolve my situation quickly and efficiently. She was always transparent about the costs involved. It is clear that she has compassion for people and will not charge unnecessary hours for her financial gain. She was always prompt in responding to my questions and I am very thankful that I chose her as my lawyer.
After experiencing a dispute within the workplace, I contacted Noordam Advocatuur after researching for an employment law lawyer for expats living in Amsterdam. I fully appreciated the approachability and transparency with Noordam Advocatuur during my initial consultation and so decided to proceed with them, and how happy I am that I did. I would certainly use Noordam Advocatuur again if ever the need arose and I would highly recommend them to anyone who was experiencing an employment related issue, especially Linda Couvreur. The correspondence from Linda was always courteous, accessible and quick. I was kept informed with what was happening with my case the whole way through. Excellent professional service from start to finish and an extremely positive outcome, with Linda’s expertise and knowledge undoubtedly achieving the best possible result. Thank you to Linda and all at Noordam Advocatuur.
I contacted Noordam Advocatuur for assistance with a contractual issue I had with an employer. As an expatriate, I was quite unsure with regards on how to proceed and what my chances of success were. They responded almost immediately and setup an introductory meeting to assess the chances of my case (free of charge). Throughout the process, I was informed of any and all costs up front, which is an ode to their transparency. The service I received from Linda Couvreur was professional and to the point, and I was happy with the end result of the proceedings. I would recommend Noordam Advocatuur to anyone!
As an expat working at a large multinational company for over 9 years, I sought Mr. Noordam’s help when I faced a redundancy announcement with many layers of complexity including confusing documentation from my employer, a whistleblowing situation, and managers and HR personnel in monthly rotation due to illnesses, resignations and dismissals. Mr. Noordam had a calm, knowledgeable and reassuring style to help me throughout this journey. Most importantly, he explained the timing and proper procedure of the redundancy process, and with his expertise we could distinguish the true legal red flags from workplace toxic politics and focus on those. This rational approach helped me to formulate proper legal responses to my employer to ultimately reach a settlement and begin a new career chapter. Beyond providing legal expertise, he seemed to genuinely care about me overcoming this unfortunate situation.
As an expat working in the Netherlands I count myself very fortunate to have found Mr Noordam when I was seeking legal advice relating to unfair treatment from my employer. I was not expecting to actually enjoy the experience, but thanks to Mr Noordam’s highly professional approach, I did indeed enjoy standing up to my employer’s attempt at unfair treatment to such an extent that I was a little sad when it was all concluded. Mr Noordam is of course highly knowledgeable about employment law. However due to his deep experience, and as mentioned elsewhere on this website, his humanity, you will receive grounded and realistic guidance from start to finish. By seeking advice from Mr Noordam you are maximising your chances of success, and you may well also enjoy the journey, as I most certainly did.
I am an expat based in The Netherlands and working for a big US multinational. When my employer announced that they terminated my contract, I contacted Arnoud Noordam. He was very reactive and supportive. Based on his advice, we very quickly framed our approach and did answer to my employer. Then, Arnoud was very pragmatic and efficient in his discussions with the other party and his follow-up was great. The outcome was positive for me and a win/win for both parties. I highly recommend Arnoud to anyone who would be in a similar situation.
